I’m currently on Day 6 of the Make Over Your Morning class by Crystal Paine. I’m not sure how other have taken this class – if they take it consecutively every day for 14 days? But when I signed up I kinda had a plan in my head that I would take weekends off.
Day 6 goes right along with Day 5 – it talks more about goals and breaking them down. I did actually wake up on Saturday and work on Day 6. I also woke up early on Sunday, although I didn’t work on any certain “day” for the class, rather I woke up, prepared myself a little for the day mentally and read a book I was really enjoying. It feels SO nice to start this habit of waking up and making time to prepare the right way for my day.
Day six gave me a lot to think about. Actually if I’m being completely honest, day five did too. I am still working on both days. I’m trying to use the information and habits that I form from this class to prepare me for 2016. I really want to start the year off right! And just like I said above – I’m not sure how other people have worked through this course, but I am going to spend a couple extra days on the days that I need a couple extra days on. So today I repeated day six.
A couple extras that I really loved from the lesson were: this link from Anne Bogel (Modern Mrs. Darcy) about the process, not the outcome – something I really relate too. (you can read a little bit about my struggles with the process versus the outcome here) And then this post from Crystal that includes a printable calendar to check things off. I am thinking of really using this with my family and our scripture reading in January.
So my assignment today is the same as Saturday. I’m thinking and brainstorming some goals – and breaking them down into pieces. I am pretty good at making goals for a day or a week. But longer term goals are harder for me. I’ve worked on a huge brainstorm list – but I really need to break it down and figure out what I really want to focus on. I don’t need to bite off more than I can chew!
How do you break down goals or keep them in the front of your mind?Interested in making over your mornings? You can sign up here – and you even get the first day free!
I’m really looking forward to this week. And hoping it is better than last!
